COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Andechser Weissbier Hefetrüb.

When summer is on the way and the days invite you to swim, ramble, climb, or simply enjoy the outdoors, you will discover that an Andechser Weissbier Hell is just the right thing to quench your thirst. Since Saint Joseph’s Day on 19 March 1993, Andechs Weissbier Hell has found many new friends. Untreated and bottled in its natural state of yeasty turbidity, this is a top fermented beer for the epicure. Its light honey colour makes it an immediate eyecatcher. Then there’s the opalescence and fine structure of the yeast turbidity. At the same time, the creamy, fine pored head invites you to get to know this light Weissbier from the Holy Mountain. You’ll need two takes to enjoy the aromas to the full. First, distinctive fruity aromas like banana and honeydew melon come to the fore, followed by fine cloves. Andechser Weissbier Hell is a very tangy, refreshing treat with the conviction of a full, soft body. It concludes on a finely balanced interplay of light sweet honey and a delicate acidity with undertones of bitter hoppiness that quickly subside into a harmonious aftertaste. A Weissbier that embodies a slice of the Andechs lifestyle: finely yeasty, tangy, and sparkling, it refreshes and renews the thirst for more (original extract: 12.5%; abv: 5.5%).

50cl bottle, served in Weizen. Pours foggy orange-yellow with medium white frothy head. Wheat , bubblegum, hints of banana and spice on the nose. Predominantly banana-like concerning taste, some cereals, and a slight touch of hops in the back (subtle). Not too dry or sweet, very well balanced. Medium body, perfect carbonation. A really pleasant Hefeweizen.

Clear yellow with lasting big snow white foam head, lacing. Aroma is citrus, with some floral. Bjit weak taste, a Weissen. Short aftertaste, not a bad beer on a warmer spring day. (Velp 201304)

Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2013
50cl bottle pours with an opaque pale gold body that exhibits copper hues and supports a nearly bright white head of foam. The aroma is fully banana and clove and yeasty and a touch of pepper. The taste is both smooth and prickly with splashes of refreshment. I get a rush of carbonation that pushes banana notes right up and then over the water fall of flavor. Around the edge eddies are notes of spicy cloves and a faint yeastiness. From time to time I also get micro second flashes of lemon as well. Cool stuff.
